Thugs, Hooligans and Idiots

The particular idiot I refer to is the guy in the photo on the front of today's Telegraph sport supplement. A huge A4 photo of a crowd of morons waving 'Judas' cards at White Hart Lane, in the top left corner there's one muppet with his card upside down. 'SADUJ!!' he screams in anger at the defenders superb display against his old club—it's about as sensible as calling him judas, see what I mean.

I won't (can't) say too much about the game but I will say I thought Sol Campbell and Ledley King were superb, as was Richard Wright who made a string of superb saves to keep Arsenal's skin intact all through the game. I don't blame him for the equaliser, it wasn't the strongest of attempted saves but he did well to get across in the first place. Thirty seconds before the goal, if Kanu was playing keepie uppie at the corner flag rather than playing silly beggars, Poyet wouldn't have even had the chance.

Congratulations to Sunderland for overcoming dirty Leeds, and for once I feel sorry for Robbie Keane, I thought he should have had a penalty rather than a yellow card to be honest. But then again, boys who cry wolf....

This week's awards were not easy to choose. Goal of the week? Louis Saha's superb long range beauty? Kevin Phillip's expertly timed and executed half-volley perhaps? For me though, it had to be—definite contender for young player of the season—Michael Ricketts' four fantastic touches over and under half the Ipswich defence.
